Program description

Our Master's programme in English Language and Culture consists of two unique specializations, namely Metaphor in Discourse and Literature Visualized.

The specialization Metaphor in Discourse focuses on English in usage, with a special emphasis on metaphor. This programme is specifically interesting for students who are interested in communication and discourse from a linguistic approach. The angle of the programme differs greatly from others. Rather than looking at more general theories and at times focusing on smaller details, our programme starts by looking at one phenomenon in linguistics, metaphor, and uses that phenomenon as a tool to discuss language usage and discourse in general. It is a Master's programme with an analytical approach, but students will be given the opportunity to apply their knowledge during their thesis. The specialization Literature Visualized focuses on the relation between literature and visual culture. Rooted in the VU tradition of studying the relations between word and image, this specialised interdisciplinary programme will teach you to analyse the various ways in which textual and visual culture interact. The topics studied from this perspective range from the Renaissance stage to screenwriting, from the relation between poetry and photography to film adaptations of gothic novels.
